Alex Chinco is assistant professor of finance at the Zicklin School of Business, CUNY Baruch.
His research interests cover a wide range of fields: from traditional asset pricing to market microstructure to behavioral finance to real-estate finance. All my papers start by thinking carefully about the day-to-day research process. That is the common thread. For example, the opening sentence of my paper Estimating The Anomaly Base Rate is “Imagine you are a financial economist sitting at your weekly research seminar.” I think we can learn a lot about how financial markets work by studying how financial economists work.
